Dear Parents and Guardians,
Hello! Welcome back! My name is Anna Kim. I am your child’s teacher for the 2017-2018 school year and I am very excited to have your child in my class. I have high expectations in all areas for your child and I will do all that I can for your child to achieve their goals. I look forward to working with your child as well as yourself.
This year, I want to focus on their academic goals as well as learning life skills. We will be cooking once a week, going on community based instructions, and mainstreaming into the general population whenever possible and appropriate.
Please look over, fill out, and return all essential papers in the new student folder. Also, take special note of the PE order forms as we are requiring all students (even in APE) to buy and dress in PE uniforms during PE time.
The discipline philosophy at Alondra Middle School encourages students to exhibit model behavior through motivation and positive intervention. I expect the students to follow classroom and school expectations, consequences and incentives. I use a token economy, behavior chart, and prize box in class to help reward their positive behaviors.
I believe parents are so essential to the success of our children and can’t wait to work as a team. E-mail is my preferred way of communicating; my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org, or call me at (562) 602-8004 ext 4712. If you would also like, we can have a communication log that is filled out daily. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Anna Kim, M.A. in Special Education
Education Specialist, Moderate-Severe, Mild-Moderate, Gen Ed K-8th
